A Mexican adventure that stamps all over its small fishing village origins, Cancun is a luxury holiday destination that’s making huge waves in the travel world. Comprising a glitzy hotel zone, soft sandy beaches and a nightlife scene to rival party capitals Ibiza and Las Vegas, it’s the ideal location for fun-loving couples, groups of friends and hen and stag parties.
Unsurprisingly, the area’s hotel zone is where you’ll find a plethora of five-star, all-out-luxury resorts complete with private stretches of sandy beach. All-inclusive options are common, but regardless of your board, you’re guaranteed top-notch cuisine. From authentic Mexican dishes to sushi, steaks and pasta, á la carte dining and buffet-style choices are in abundance throughout the hotels. Oh, and let’s not forget the sumptuous spas, host of watersports, golf courses and tantalising cocktails that are also on offer.
After dark, Cancun comes alive… not just during the famed Spring Break period. Lively bars, many conforming to the all-you-can-drink style entry packages are copious. However, for an evening like no other, visit Coco Bongo. This show and club combined in one will tick all your entertainment boxes.
Although relatively Americanised, it’s worth mentioning that there is another side to this thriving Mexican region... a more authentic experience if you wish. Nearby are a host of excursions suitable for thrill seekers, animal lovers, water babies and culture vultures. From exploring Chichén Itzá, the world-famous complex of Mayan ruins to swimming with dolphins in an eco-archaeological park, Cancun seamlessly caters for all.
WINGED BOOTS WISDOM
Modernised in recent years, Cancun also offers a range of extravagant shopping malls which offer both designer and high street stores alongside quirky boutiques. Las Americas Mall, La Isla Shopping Village and Luxury Avenue will make a dent in your credit card for sure.
